THIS IS AN ONLINE CLASS via ZOOM, so you will also need to have a decent internet connection and download the free ZOOM app. Instructions will be emailed before 1st class.
We spend too much time on our hand knits to throw them away when they get a hole. Join Holli Yeoh for a three-hour, practical repair class. You’ll learn Swiss darning, stocking darning and how to use a knitted patch to repair a hole. The techniques are transferable to commercially made garments, as well.
Holli will share other repair strategies including needle felting to repair small holes.
Skill Level: Suitable for beginners and beyond.
- Homework swatch
- Some small amounts of yarn for repairs in the same weight as your swatch but not in the
same colour. For this class, you want to be able to see your fixes!
- Yarn needles: blunt tipped and a sharper needle
- Two double pointed needles in a size appropriate for the weight of yarn/swatch
- Crochet hook approximate size of knitting needles
- Locking stitch markers
- Small embroidery hoop, if you have one
- Rubber band
- Knit items (hand or commercial knits) with holes or thin spots for a discussion on strategies
for fixing them

INSTRUCTOR: Holli Yeoh of Holli Yeoh Designs
Holli feels strongly about fine craftsmanship, believing that while there’s more than one right way to do things, it’s important to do it right! To this end, she teaches skills that enable knitters to feel justified pride in their finished objects, while accommodating different knitting styles and preferences. Students leave her workshops with an arsenal of valuable techniques, deep understanding of the choices to be made in knitting, and new confidence.
